When someone is diagnosed with cancer you want to help and feel as though there isn't much you can do. Now a child having cancer is a whole other level that no one should have to go through and I want to help anyway I can.
I worked with Jeff when he started with QuinnPumps later being GE. I had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful wife Jordan through Christmas parties and functions. They have a daughter Wynter and son Zac. They relocated to Oklahoma for Jeffs job and have made it a home.
Funding for this family will help them be able to give Zac the treatments and care he needs and help their family stay strong. They need all the love and strength right now.
5 year old Zac has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his right femur. Zacs particular form of osteosarcoma is a rare type called Sclerosing osteosarcoma which was incredibly hard to diagnose. He has just recently started treatment of 6-7 rounds of 5 week chemotherapy cycles, with surgery to remove the tumor (amputation) after the first two cycles. These treatments and trips to the hospital are costly and not all covered by healthcare in the U.S.
Any money raised through the campaign will 100% go to his treatment, care, and prosthetics. Should there be any money left the Yanch family will donate the remainder to osteosarcoma research.
They have a long road ahead of them and can't do it alone. It is true it takes a village to raise a child! They are so thankful for all the support and care they have thus far received from family and friends near and far. Let's keep it going!
